The Birkie Tour

A Great Time to Ski the Distance on the Birkie Trail!

Skiers choose their own Tour distance and pace on the world class Birkie trail system. Park, start, and finish in the same location.  We’ll celebrate with food, beverage, camaraderie and fun after your ski! Entry includes participant gift. Choose to ski 16, 28, or 47 km. The Tour is pure fun and a great way to experience the wonderful Birkie Trail system. It’s perfect whether you’re a:

  • A Birkie skier looking for a supported training day;
  • A skier thinking about the Birkie event, but unsure about being ready;
  • A skier who loves to ski, but is not interested in ski racing.

Birkie Ambassadors, some of the local celebs, will be leading Tour groups in both the 23k and 46k skate and classic races, specific leaders and times will be posted the week of the event along with how to join them on the trail. Keep an eye out for yellow “Ambassador” bibs as there will be many skiing along throughout the Tour to answer questions and give advice as well.

The Cabin Stop will be providing chili, beer, and pop at the Start/Finish area to re-fuel and socialize after your ski.

Keep your ears open for upcoming info for on snow demos that weekend as well!

The Birkie Tour is a fun day for skiers of any ability to enjoy a supported ski on the world class Birkie Trail. The food and all the extras make it a fun community event to meet other skiers locally and from around the region.
